Spurs defender Eric Dier wants ashes scattered at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has revealed his wants his ashes scattered at the club's stadium after he dies.

Dier, who joined Spurs from Sporting Lisbon in 2014, has earned a reputation for his commitment and passion in north London.

The 27-year-old has made 271 appearances for the club under Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho and is one of Tottenham's longest serving players after Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane.

And now it appears Dier's loyalty to Tottenham will run beyond the grave following this latest revelation.

In an interview with the Evening Standard, the defender was asked where he would like to be buried after he meets his maker.

He replied: "I’d have my ashes scattered in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium."

Tottenham's groundsman might have something to say about that, but there can be no doubting Dier's commitment to Spurs.

The centre-half signed a new four-year contract with the Lilywhites in 2020 and is one of Mourinho's trusted lieutenants.

Upon agreeing a new deal 12 months ago, he said: "I am really happy to continue here and commit to this new journey we're on.

"It's crazy to think that I have been here for six years now. I have enjoyed it a lot. It's a fantastic place to be.

"We've had some great times together but I want to have even better times and I still feel there are a lot of things I need to achieve here before it's over."

Dier has the opportunity to achieve something later this month when Tottenham face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

Spurs haven't won a trophy since Ledley King guided the club to victory in the same competition 12 years ago. Dier and his team-mates will be eager to end that hoodoo at Wembley on April 25th.
